Travel Photo Contest Kicks Off in Canada

Travel Photo Contest Kicks Off in Canada Photo

Posted on July 17, 2007 in Photos

We’ve always thought Canadians were particularly dedicated travelers, and now we have proof: the “Share Your Travel Experiences” Photo Contest, which is gathering amazing entries in its debut weeks. From now through September 10, Canadian photographers can upload and submit their travel photos and vote for their favorites. The rest of us will have to stick to visiting the photo gallery for our daily fix of wanderlust, but with snapshots like this—and this—that’s prize enough.

As for the real loot, digital cameras and a Vegas vacation await the winners. And there are multiple ways to nab these rewards, with a professionally judged grand prize, a viewer’s choice award, and a random drawing of voters planned.

If you’re a northern neighbor unsure of which photos to enter, check out the 10 contest categories for inspiration. We’re partial to the authentic-sounding “Great White North” grouping, but we love “Life’s a Beach” for those stunning sunsets, “Travels in History” for its ancient wonders, and “Eco-Tourism” for the responsible-travel ideas.

Best of luck to those of you entering. We’ll be checking in frequently and cheering from the sidelines as we attempt to soak up some of your globe-trotting savoir faire.
